It’s officially fall: the leaves have changed, the temp has dropped, and sweater weather is officially upon us. And, with fall comes changes in accessories and must have essentials. This season is a great time to invest in some new and long-term pieces that will last you through to spring and well into next year’s fall.
So here are 5 accessories that be your go-to, won’t get sick of pieces that will become staples in your wardrobe.
An Oversized Bag
An oversized bag is great for the fall, mainly because you’re outfit load gets much heavier when the weather is cold. It’s perfect for stuffing your scarves, gloves, earmuffs or hats – everything! Oversized bags are great for work as well, making this bag not only useful but perfect year-round.
J Crew Brompton Hobo, $298
A Cozy Scarf
Nothing like a chunky, cozy scarf to keep you warm when the weather turns cold. Scarves are perfect all the time, so wear to work, wear running errands, or even wear them at home. What’s great about this scarf is that it’s an infinity style, making it easy to wrap. I have a lot of girlfriends that will ask me how to wrap a scarf, so I always suggest trying infinity styles because they’re super easy to style – just wrap and wear!
Paula Bianco Chunky Knit Wrap Scarf, $105
Great legwear is an essential for fall because it allows you to get away with transitioning some of you favorite summer pieces (shorts, dresses, skirts) into your fall looks. You can stick with simple, classic neutrals, or you can have some fun and incorporate fun colors and prints. I suggest one classic and a few fun for fall and winter.
My pick: Anthropologie Colorblocked Tights, $18
Fingerless gloves are great for fall – it’s not cold enough for full on gloves, but it’s cold enough for something and fingerless gloves are it. They are the perfect blend of chic and rock star and look great paired with anything. Coming in all different colors and styles, some edgier than others, there’s a great pair out there for everyone.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Whipstitch-Detail Red Leather Gloves, $48
A Flat Boot
If you’re like me, you live in your heels but it’s always best to have a flat boot that can take you anywhere. Perfect with jeans, tailored trousers, leggings, tights and skirts, they’ll look great with everything while keeping your girls comfortable. Plus, they’re great for the winter when walking in the snow in heels gets a little tricky.
Nine West Vintage America Collection Vagabond Boots, $329
So here are my 5 must have fall accessories every girl can really utilize in her wardrobe. They’re easy to wear, they look good on everyone, and are pieces you’ll most likely have for a long time. Have fun mixing and matching these into your cold weather looks and you’ll be more than set for fall!
